MINNEAPOLIS – Last week KARE 11 told the story of Minnesota United goalkeeper Matt Lampson and his inspirational mission of giving back to young cancer fighters.

It was at the end of our interview with Matt where things took a much, much lighter turn. We felt like we needed to share it with the world.

“I could tell you everything there is to know about doughnuts,” Lampson said with a grin on his face.

He’s not kidding. The man has a deep knowledge of the frosted pastry treat.

The self-proclaimed “doughnut snob” says his affinity for the pastries grew deep when he moved to Chicago.

“Their donut scene was really nice,” Lampson said.

But his favorite doughnut spot is way out east. Union Square Donuts in Massachusetts gets Lampson’s top spot in the United States.

As for number one in the Twin Cities, well, he has yet to hit everywhere on his list (yes, there is a list).

His top spot right now, thought, is a tie between Cardigan Donuts in Minneapolis and Mojo Monkey in St. Paul, giving the slight edge to Mojo Monkey.
